    Is there anyway we can get a MotoBlur Rom on Triumph? I love CM7 and Miui but i also want to try MotoBlur. Like one for the newer versions Motoblur 2.2 or 2.3.

    If i was to try and port one what would i need to do?

    I was wondering that the whole time why put stock android 2.2 on such a strong phone? Yes, change of pace lol:D

    Well stock froyo is a wholelot better than froyo with motoblur. I think motor blur us ugly. But cm don't wont manufacturer skins on there phone. That's why the ov had the stock froyo. I want a cm/Motorola released stock gingerbread. No miui no cm7 no aosp gingerbread, just a stock made for the triumph gingerbread update! No ics either its to blue and ugly like!

    Have you seen or played with the Motoblur on Droid Bionic. To me i think its mostly for socialization which i love and all those stock widgets. What will happen if i try to get a Droid Bionic Rom edit to make it work with the triumph.

    Probably won't boot. The Droid bionic and this phone are two completely different animals. I mean you can try but it will most certainly have bad outcomes. The kernel is different for sure, and I'm sure a whole slew of files and drivers and kernel modules are way different as well. Not saying it is impossible to port it over, just not very practical.

    Were stuff with either a aosp based(CM7, AOSP, MIUI) ROM or whatever vm gives us. Which will probably be a gingerbread update eventually. I hope to god they dont put ics on this thing. The only advantage are the updated api's and libraries that ics uses, other than that its a re themed gingerbread.

    Oh so its easier to make CM7, AOSP, and MIUI rom than to try and port one over.

    Yeah I mean they are not easy either but way easier than porting like a sense or motor blur based rom. I have never heard of anyone doing it!

    Oh so what about roms from the Motorola Droid, Is it hard to port those roms? It's just hard to port Roms period.

    I haven't used it, but there is a motoblur theme for CM7. I don't know how close it is to actually using motoblur, but it is available.

    I had it cause i was on CM7 then i went to MIUI. Is there anyway to convert it to the MIUI format?

    idk... you could probably google search "how to make a theme for miui" and use the stuff for the blur theme to make it :D

    What is it you have against AOSP roms?
  18. b_randon14

    b_randon14 Android Expert

    Nothing at all. Just a personal preference. Plus aosp ports and stuff always have bugs and broken stuff in them. Now if Steve kondik(cyanogen) or one of the other official cyanogenmod members started supporting this device then maybe. But untill then it will be a port. Plus I hate how noonee seems to care about anything except for cm or miui as far as Roms go. Not saying they ain't good roms because they are and not taking away from Isaac and tickerguy because they are awesome revs and have done awesome jobs with cm and miui, but I prefer stock based roms.

    check out the CM7 themes thread... there are lots of links to different skins, including motoblur, touchwiz, and xperia manufacturer skins to apply on top of CM7. It works quite well! I would recommend the gingerblur b theme...

    hope that helps! :cool:
    Oh, and if you feel the need for the motoblur launcher, Helauncher from the market is free and works well.

    I might prefer stock based too if they were gingerbread.

    I thought sine the bionic was made by Motorola it would be easier to port it.
    I see on youtube this video says you have to change the kernels and keymapping buttons (i said that part)out and it should work. How to costumize a custom ROM for android - YouTube

    Yeah you would have to do that, but I just can't see it being very easy. I mean the way the framework is designed on this phone as compared to a phone with motoblur or sense or touchwiz is completely different. And plus like I said before getting the drivers and library files to play nicely with a new phone would not be an easy undertaking. I believe the closest we could have to motoblur would be a ported theme, without all the functionality of the real motoblur.

    So if I am correct there is no way a MotoBlur Rom would on the Triumph? Unless I try to port it?
